<p>Artists Josh Powell and Kim Reid Kuhn collaborate on one of Bemis Underground's last shows, Underground, History

Well, it’s official. In case you missed it, last month, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts unceremoniously removed the signage from its former Underground entrance, after the former venue lay dormant for more than a year.

<p>Atropos, an edgy, surreal dreamscape painting by Nolan Tredway is featured in his show, Surface Tension in LIncoln's Fuse Coworking gallery.</p> ‘Surface Tension’

Ahh, Nolan Tredway, Lincoln, Nebraska's “golden boy.” It can be said that Tredway is easily one of the region's more recognizable young artists. His work over the last ten years or so has been nothing but consistent as he pushes himself to further develop what seems to be one enormous body of work.

<p> ‘One Little Indian’ at RNG Gallery‚Ķ

There are moments that have left imprints in the minds of many - the past that can be revisited through objects or events with thoughts and images amalgamated in energy, color and determination.  One Little Indian, the latest show at RNG Gallery, by Sarah Rowe does just that.  Her work combines images from both the present and the past.
